FENDER USA Custom Shop 59' LTD Heavy Relic Stratocaster "Sherwood Green Metallic
This 1959 Strat is really an Outstanding example of Custom Shop artistry here, starting with the incredible finish and remarkably cool aging. Think all the vibe and familiarity of the iconic vintage Fenders, but in a more modern and much more playable package. This guitar has an ultra comfortable neck carve (roasted maple!) and great rosewood board that really enhances the clarity and articulation. The pickups are extremely well balanced and versatile allowing for that signature quack in positions 2 and 4 while also offering a healthy dose of blues and searing midrange in the neck and bridge positions. Cant fault this one. A few of these actually made it to Namm, so good value for money here.
Condition Report: A 2018, mint condition, absolutely stunning custom relic strat! This guitar is beastly and it has such a fierce tone. One of the nicest relic jobs I have seen for a while with the perfect hardware to match. The neck is straight and frets sparkly and untouched. Restrung and set up with 9's and she is ready for her new owner. Lives in a light brown custom shop case with all case candy including shop floor traveler. Tempted to hold onto this one for a while but I can't deny her to not be played and loved. Grab her before I change my mind.
